Dan Bilzerian , better known as “Blitz” is the wild man of the group. “There is never a dull moment when he is around” says fellow Team Victory member Antonio Esfandiari.
Birthdate: Dec 7th, 1980
Born: St. Pete, FL and raised in Tampa, FL
Blitz got his nickname from his years in the Navy going through BUD/S Underwater Demolition SEAL training.
It was in college at University of Florida when he started playing poker. It wasn’t long before he caught the poker bug and began playing higher stakes games. "I used to beat the shit out of my roommate and force him to sign onto his poker act at 2am and ritually busted it before sunrise. Then every morning end up writing him a check for the lost sum and berate him for letting him play. After pissing away my college drinking money I was forced to play a little tighter and am now a winning player."
“Blitz? He’s a blast” says fellow Team Victory member Andrew Robl. “He once wanted to go to a Halloween party but didn’t have a costume. So he and a buddy pulled over his car, blitz opened his trunk, pulled out some camo pants and a machine gun and rolled up in the party with a loaded machine gun. After getting drunk and letting girls play with the loaded gun his boys ex-filed him w/o incident. "Its is a pure act of god that I am not in jail or dead with all the dumb shit I have done in my life."
Blitz recalls some of his most memorable poker experiences... Bluffing off 250k to perky smirky in 10 minutes in a strait 50 100 game, and then there was the time “I caught a running gut shot strait after floating Alan Meltzer's 9k flop bet with 5 high on a q j 3 rainbow board and felted him for 300k pot I put him in coma... he literally took a 2 hour break from playing to walk around the casino.”
When asked about Victory Poker he shares “All my boys that are pros on the site are super stand up guys, I would trust them with my life. I also don't like hanging out with cheap people, and these boys go on vacation with gasoline so they can more easily set fire to their money... I love it!”
